Mrs. Elizabeth M. Rapp, 97, died April 17, 2014, of natural causes at Grace Healthcare Nursing Home in Lake Wales. She was born in 1917 in Minetto, N.Y. A 1939 graduate of the University of Rochester’s nursing program, she worked for many years as an RN. In 1943, she married Lester L. Rapp and moved to Norwich, N.Y, where they raised their son, William. After moving to Clearwater, Fla., in 1971 and working at Morton Plant Hospital, she retired about 1980, when they moved to Lake Wales.

Lester died in 1984 and she began volunteer work in the Visitor’s Center at Bok Tower Gardens until the late 1990s. In addition to William, she is survived by a sister-in-law and a number of nieces, nephews, grandnieces and grandnephews. Much loved by family and friends, she is greatly missed! Marion Nelson Funeral Home is handling arrangements.
